Believe in Magic! {Altered Canvas}

Ever since we created our Daisy Faerie Marci stamp, I had an idea of making an Altered Canvas with her and I wanted it to look magical!  Not sure how magical my Canvas is, but I really, really, really enjoyed making it and I really, really, really love how it came out!

I painted canvas with acrylic paints in pink, yellow and white and then added some blue and green with bubble wrap.  I cut a doily in half for two corners, and misted it with shimmery glimmer.

Daisy Marci is resting on the Whimsy Mushroom.  Isn't she the CUTEST?!!  Oh, and did you notice those little mushrooms?  They are included with the Whimsy Mushroom stamp!

Daisies are made using our Water Lily Die.  I die cut four sets of flowers and it allowed me to make eight pretty daisies in four different sizes!  Viva Peal pen in Yellow for the centers.  Just perfect!

All the gorgeous leaves are cut from our Large Flourish Die.  I die cut four flourishes, two from green cardstock and two from dotted paper with glitter from Best Creations.

Heart Fence, Butterfly and Rolled Roses (Small&Medium and Large) are our Dies too!

I stamped the words in the sentiment (comes with Daisy Faerie Marci) separately on the ivory cardstock and outlined them with Memento Marker, then cut out.

This Altered Canvas is one of the projects for my upcoming WORKSHOP at Andie's Scrapbooking store in Bakersfield, CA.
